How do you perform the procedure?
We draw the blood at our Embassy Studio offices, just like a normal blood test at your doctor’s office. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP and remove whatever remains of the blood.
Once the PRP has been isolated, utilizing a topical anesthesia we start to inject the PRP into your scalp. We prescribe this method once a year or semi-annually relying upon your requirements and hair development.* Since this methodology has numerous advantages of hair follicle improvement, this technique can be used preoperatively, intraoperative, or postoperatively.
Does PRP work?
Results will vary from individual to individual. Some hair transplant specialists apply PRP to the scalp for those patients who are not surgical candidates every three to four months. Others will use PRP before or in the midst of surgery to ensure hair survivability.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is becoming a positive non-surgical procedure that aids in the growth of hair that was lost. It has been seen that PRP has increased the amount of hair growth for individuals in the latest study with patients experiencing hair loss or who used it to help aid in hair survivability after transplants.
Is PRP for me?
PRP is great for a lot of people that have hair loss, but we invite you to meet with our hair loss specialist to determine if PRP is the right solution for you. PRP uses your own cells and it will not be rejected from your system, which ensures that this procedure chances of success is greatly increased for individuals that are good candidates.
